The bestseller, Cape Horn: One Man's Dream, One Woman's Nightmare, was first published in 1994 and reissued in 2003.
His Dream—a lifelong goal to round Cape Horn and circumnavigate the Southern Hemisphere in their sailboat.
Her Nightmare—coping with her husband—a driven captain—and the frightening seas of the Great Southern Ocean. Eight hundred miles WNW of Cape Horn they encountered the Ultimate Wave which pitchpoled their sailboat and turned it into a leaking lifeboat. Pulling together, they struggled over 42 days to reach the coast of southern Chile while family and friends all but gave up hope.
Cape Horn is a gripping account of one woman's courage, a couple's turbulent relationship, survival and endurance in the seas of Patagonia.
